Artistic Portrait of Tak Matsumoto
I found this a few days ago while browsing a few B’z related websites. Rima Fujita, a full-time artist living in San Diego, posted this on her blog:
After many years I’ve begun having this urge to paint portraits again, and when I was thinking about doing a portrait series once more I got a commission offer to do a portrait of Tak Matsumoto, the guitar player of the Japan’s renowned rock duo, B’z, by a good friend of mine who wanted to give it to Tak as a gift. Tak had just won the Grammy award this year. “How timely,” I thought. I was thrilled to do his portrait, yet the last time I met Tak in person was over 10 years ago. Normally I don’t like to use photographs to paint portraits. So I really had to depend on my imagination!
